Amphibious Car: WaterCar Chassis
The light weight chromoly chassis is engineered to integrate into the composite hull using cutting edge epoxy adhesion technology creating the revolutionary amphibious hull/body. Amphibious Car: WaterCar Engine After many years of testing multiple engine combinations, the clear winner was the reliable Honda V6 V-Tec. It has a proven ten year track record with its 250 HP outboard motor lasting over 5000 hours between rebuilds in some of the harshest environment in the world. The same motor has proven it's excellence in the Honda and Acura SUV’s exceeding 200 hundred thousand miles between overhauls. The most important component that makes the Panther possible is the patented Amphibious Car: WaterCar transfer case that converts the power from the motor to the jet and the transmission. Amphibious Car: WaterCar Inc. designed and patented their revolutionary amphibious transfer case in 2004; it has proved to be indestructible. It uses the Winter’s Quick Change gears and components that can handle over a thousand HP.
When this is combined with the stainless steel Panther Jet that has been tried and proven with over 25 years and over 35,000 units sold... This amphibious drive train combination is truly unbeatable. An amphibious vehicle (or simply amphibian), is a vehicle that is a means of transport, viable on land as well as on (or under) water. Amphibious vehicles include amphibious bicycles, ATVs, cars, buses, trucks, military vehicles, and hovercraft. Two of the most significant amphibious cars to date were developed during World War II. The most proliferous was the German Schwimmwagen, a small jeep-like 4x4 vehicle designed by the Porsche engineering firm in 1942 and widely used in World War II.
One of the most capable post-war amphibious off-roaders was the German Amphi-Ranger, that featured a hull made of seawater-resistant AlMg2 aluminium alloy. Purely recreational amphibian cars include the 1960s Amphicar and the contemporary Gibbs Aquada. With almost 4,000 pieces built, the Amphicar is still the most successfully produced civilian amphibious car to date. The Gibbs Aquada stands out due to its capability of high speed planing on water. Gibbs built fifty Aquadas in the early 2000s after it was developed by a team assembled by founder Alan Gibbs before the company's engine supplier, Rover, was unable to continue providing engines.
Gibbs and new partner Neil Jenkins reconstituted the company and are now seeking U.S. regulatory approval for the Aquada The Southern California-based company, WaterCar, founded by Dave March, has also built four working amphibious prototypes, one which holds the Guinness World Record for World's Fastest Amphibious Vehicle (The Python). In 2013, March released the company's first commercial vehicle, The Panther. Since its release, WaterCar has been popular in the Middle East, selling to the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates, with six additional vehicles being sold to the Crown Prince of Dubai. The WaterCar has also been sold to tech enthusiasts and residents of Silicon Valley. amphibious car price Other amphibious cars include the US Hydra Spyder and the Spira4u.
